Don’t Misuse Beverages, Chemicals & Food

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply Wisdom.com

What! Do ​YOU​ not know that the body of ​YOU​ people is [the] temple of the holy spirit within ​YOU, which ​YOU​ have from God? Also, ​YOU​ do not belong to yourselves, for ​YOU​ were bought with a price. By all means, glorify God in the body of ​YOU​ people” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

Our bodies are temples of holy spirit and we must honor and glorify Yahweh God with our bodies. Inappropriate use of beverages, chemicals, and food are common forms of recreation which do not honor Yahweh and hurt the temples of our bodies.

Furthermore, we are told to offer our bodies as living sacrifices: “Consequently I entreat YOU​ by the compassions of God, brothers, to present ​YOUR​ bodies a sacrifice living, holy, acceptable to God, a sacred service with ​YOUR​ power of reason. And quit being fashioned after this system of things, but be transformed by making ​YOUR​ mind over, that ​YOU​ may prove to yourselves the good and acceptable and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:1-2). Being a living sacrifice means that we offer ourselves, our lives, our bodies, and our health to God. If we are unhealthy and mistreat our bodies then we can’t properly worship and love Yahweh and are less effective or useless in His service.

Do you honor and take care of your body?
